Despite advanced treatments and improved understanding of stroke, it remains one of the top global causes of death. Fortunately, early identification and intervention can dramatically improve mortality and residual effects. Walk with a Doc is a nationwide program with emerging chapters throughout our diverse Chicago neighborhoods. Leading this walk is Dr. Neelum Aggarwal, a cognitive neurologist at Rush University Medical Center and co-leader of the CEERIAS group (Community Engagement for Early Recognition and Immediate Action in Stroke). After a 5-minute talk about stroke awareness, identification, and prevention, you’ll set off on a 45-minute walk during which Dr. Aggarwal will be available for questions and conversation.
Please note that this walk is not totally accessible – this is a 45 – 60 minute walk through the park, so attendees need to be able to do this length of walk.
